2010 Dodge Journey SXT 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I bought 2009 Journey in August 2009. Within months, the sun roof leaked and it took several times to fix it. At about 20K the brakes had to be replaced. Dealership replaced at no cost (thankfully).
At about 40K the tires had to be replaced (19" tires are very expensive). Driver side passenger door filled up with water because tape was left on the drain holes. Had to have PTU gasket replaced recently. Cruise control looses 5 to 7 mph going up hill before it increases speed. Dealership says this is normal.
Transmission has a delay in accelleration.
Dealership can't find anything wrong. Currently have 49,000 miles on car. Really like the way it drives and handles but not happy repairs.

Best Features

Easy to drive; AWD works well in the snow; handles well around corners; touch screen radio and controls; 24 mph on highway

Worst Features

Brake problem should be investigated - several owners have complained. Interior cloth seats not very stain resistant - needs better resistant. Limited tire options and cost needs to be reconsidered.

I owned a 2009 journey and had many problems including engine stalls, transmission replaced, water leaks, paint issues, recall on brakes, interior pieces falling off, Rusting stainless tailpipes, recall on steering rack, poor MPG...like 14-15mpg for a v6???. I absolutely baby all of my vehicles including a 1969 GTX, 1971 swinger 383 and a 2004 srt4. I am a mopar freak but I just traded this POS Journey for a reliable import vehicle. No more newer MOPARS for me....they are junk.
